yes i can guarantee you that a long distance relationship will really work out between the two person if the trust and respect to each other are being used. Before i get married me and my husband are in a long distance relationship that we keep on contacting every week, it is really expensive to us but we try our best to become us one and we made it because now we are together living in the same house and building a family.

Yes. In fact, I have been in a long distance relationship for 4 years and it worked. Maybe because we both are committed and dedicated to make our relationship work. Relationships don't last long if one is not that interested to make it work. So it has to be the both of you. It is definitely not easy to be in that kind of relationship because the fact that you don't get to see each other often, there's always that tendency to cheat or to enjoy other people's company. But if you are just loyal and faithful to your partner, then there's no doubt that it'll work. Tips? [b][/b] both of you should trust each other... Even if both of you is away from each other, you should update your partner on what's going on or happening with your day/life,, and regardless of who you are with.. you should just trust each other that by the end of the day, you'll still be with each other loving even though distance sets you apart. [b][/b] it won't work if you do it alone.. you BOTH should do your part [b][/b] be honest.. if you still love or want that person, then continue sacrificing that kind of relationship for the sake of keeping it alive. If not, then be honest if you want it to end rather than living a lie. As from experience, it really worked. Best of luck

You'll certainly have doubts and more trust issues if you are away from each other. But if you trust and both believe that things will work out fine for you even though distance separates you, then you'll certainly make through it. Sacrifices are there. If you love that person and can't let go of them, then distance won't certainly break your apart.

Counting from the time we started going steady, in all the 13 years that we have been in this relationship, this is the fourth time that we are in a long-distance relationship. I have to say that it demands a little more of everything --patience, understanding, etc., and, most especially, effort. But because we love each other and are both determined to make things work, we do everything we can to, as they put it, keep the love alive.

I think very rarely....it is successful and depends on how the relatoinship is...wat u expect from it and what relation it is....if u mean serious relationship more than a friendship then......other factors should be favourable, like if feel like meeting him/her u should be able to afford the cost and time both.

uh, for me, i will work. but it depends on the two of you when you have a nice communication. like my friend of mine, i used to communicate her for a long time,and we are still friends now, and still happy for what we are doing. and i think it will last forever. so just take it handle, or should i say you two should keep in touch, share your thoughts on what happening on your life then maybe that will work. and you two should understand and know more about eachother. good day.

i do not have any personal experience. but i know about my close friend in college who came from a long distance to study and within days of coming, his girl friend started to look at someone else back home. he felt very disappointed and dull. i consoled him saying she is not worth him as she has not understood his love fully. you have to be very cautious and trust worthy in choosing your partner and will have to confide in one another

I think the long distance is not the problem who want to build a good relatinship with each other.if the two persons really treat each other as genuine and trustworthy friends,i think whatever how long the distance between them,they will still keep a good friendship.so genuine heart is more important, they could understand ,trust,helpand support each other a lot.I think it is the basic elements in the deep good relationship with each other.lol happy mylotting.

it will work if both parties love and trust each other. But expects to have a dull moment when you think of him or her too far away from your hugs and kisses. Its terrible sadness.

i have tried a long distance relationship twice and neither worked out. there are needs for a relationship to work and some are emotional some are physical. One way or the other someone is going to give and it usually hurts but just dont seeing it work out. now yes i think it is possible if two people really love each other and are determined to make it work and not fall to temptation.
